Long-standing CD Torrevieja fan Gordon Boyne was first in the queue on Tuesday to buy a ticket to join the outfit’s new 200 Club which gives him a chance of seeing the name of his business, Pinada Blinds, on the Torry home and away strips for next season. Torry Vice-President Jeff Scott(pictured to the left of Gordon, with Torry manager Pedreño on the other side), got a good hold on Gordon’s two hundred euros, making sure that the 12 season strong supporter didn’t change his mind! Pinada Blinds advertised in the match day programme all last year and sponsored no less than 15 of the Man of the Match trophy awards at the Vicente Garcia, as well as backing the Most Improved Player Award at May’s Gala Awards dinner, which all testifies to Gordon’s passion for the club.
Torrevieja manager Pedreño was also around on Tuesday to talk about the club’s preparations for the new season. He said he remained in negotiations with a group of players including Rafa Gomez, Adrian and Cristian, all of whom were considering offers elsewhere, though decisions would be made ahead of the start of training on Monday July 13th, which would also feature some British trialists looking to win a spot in the Torrevieja squad. Pedreño added that getting 2B status was the only objective for him and he was only interested in signing players that could reach that standard. He also re-emphasised the importance of the pre-season friendlies against ex-Primera division side Córdoba on Saturday July 18th, and the encounter with ex- English Premier league outfit Hull City the following Friday evening.
Any business keen to buy an entry into the 200 Club scheme to try and win a chance at being the principal sponsor of the club and having their name and logo on the shirts, will also get two complimentary season tickets.
